We visited on a Tuesday evening to celebrate my husbands birthday. I had precooked but I don’t think I needed to as there was only 4 occupied tables. The restaurant seems to be in an old church so looks fairly unique compared to other restaurants....More

I have been coming to the La Taberna in-frequently since it opened on Union Street. The staff have always been very friendly and I think it’s great that it’s family run and independent. On my recent first visit to the new location I was very...More

My husband took me here as a surprise for my birthday, and what a wonderful surprise it was! The setting of this restaurant is out of this world. They have transformed an old church and kept all of the beams, lighting and windows from the...More

We had dinner here recently and it was nice. The portion sizes are big but the prices are high. I liked the food but it was very basic, for example, the cod bites were lovely but we served without a dip or sauce and therefore...More

What a special night. We ordered way to much food and they where kind enough to suggest we narrowed our tapas order down. But we decided to keep the order as it was and wow I’m glad we did the nine dishes for 2 we...More
